Disclosure: The products in this post were sent to me by the brand in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have somewhat recently received TheSnugg products for review. If you’ve never heard of TheSnugg, they are an online retailer that carries cases for all imaginable devices. They even have cases for my Samsung Galaxy camera (which I absolutely love). Not thinking clearly when placing my order, I asked for a MacBook Pro case. I already have my incase that I love, and to be honest my laptop is 3.5 years old, it’s missing a key, etc. So sooner or later, I am going to replace it. When I got the email confirming my order, I quickly skimmed through it, only to see another email telling me that instead of a MacBook Pro I was sent a MacBook Air case, but that it was going to fit anyways. So of course the case arrives, and of course it doesn’t fit. What followed was the long chain of emails between me and the company rep, but I am not going to post it here, to avoid embarrassing the brand. I mean the case was great, the stitching, the leather work, but the attitude was so rotten!
After a week of back and forth emails, and me offering to send the MacBook case back, because I absolutely had no use for it, they agreed to send me another product. I then went to my husband, and asked him if there was anything that he wanted. Sam quickly looked over their website and picked an orange case for his iPhone 5. He thought that orange would look really cool against the black of his phone.
The case arrived a couple days later, and there was nothing wrong with it. Fit perfectly. The one thing that Sam pointed out right away is that it’s a decoration only case, it doesn’t protect the screen, so if you drop your phone on its screen, your screen is done. And that’s one thing that bothers me about all these cases available out there. Yes, often cases are just for decoration only, they make our gadgets look like fashionable accessories. But if you are like me (aka I dropped my phone everywhere, except for the toilet!) you need more than an accessory, you need a case! A REAL case!
Would I recommend TheSnugg? They do have a couple good cases, that seem durable and worth the buck, there have recently been added new color choices, but as far as everything else – you decide.
I didn’t write this post to be mean, I wrote it because I agreed to provide an honest review. But my review has definitely been affected by the brands attitude. It’s also a lesson to me, to stop agreeing to review products that will sabotage the reputation of my blog. So as my other goal for this blog for 2014, I am going to add
Stop posting pointless reviews!
to the list!
